Air Conditioning was broken in Room 3. It might still be the low season but when you cram six bodies into a room and nothing to fix the air conditioning thats pretty upsetting. It was hot, I felt beads of sweat pile up on my chest. Very disappointing. I believe I didn't get what I paid for.

Hi, After the report came in about you not having the remote control for the aircon. I personally came up to the room and found it and left in on the table. This was done within 10 minutes and the air conditioner was 100% ok and working. I am sorry you still aren't happy and this wasn't quick enough for you. Come through again and we will give you a free night to put that smile back on your face. Daniel

Excellent location and the most helpful staff. The rooms are okay, but would need refurnishing and a bit more thorough cleaning. The beds were probably very good in the 1980's.

Amazing location. Studios is one block from the Acropolis and Backpackers (same owners) is half a block closer. There's a strip of restaurants right next to both and Studios also runs its own cafe/bar/laundrymat. The place is very clean and the staff are nice. Atmosphere at Studios wasn't quite for us though - a bit harder to meet people. Might be easier at Backpackers. You can grab a walking tour for £6 from there and were able to meet people on that though.

Superb location, the staff were helpful and friendly. The studio rooms, even as dorms, were clean, tidy and well equipped, though there could have been more plug sockets for the dorm bedroom itself. Thoroughly recommended!

Wonderful, helpful staff, great bar and cafe, free walking tours, and amazing location. So glad I chose to stay here my first time in Athens! The only downside is that there's no living area inside the hostel, but it's easy to meet people at the bar and cafe downstairs. Definitely recommend staying here when you're in Greece!

It was such a pleasant experience. The place is extremely clean (I stayed in one of the apartments), the staff incredibly useful and kind and I couldn't have asked for a better location to explore the lovely city. I would definitely go back in the same place when visiting again Athens. Thank you.

Great stay at Athens Studios- perfect location dead center in Plaka, a walk from everything. Will stay here again next time in Athens.

Very well located hostel, wifi works good in the room. The lockers is kind small if you have bags more than 40L. The breakfast is more like a snack. It's a good hostel, I would recomend it.

This is not exactly a hostel, more a studio hotel. Theres no common area, or sitting area. Just a front desk and all ensuite rooms. They have a bar which is fine but its a bar its not a place to relax in a couch or confy chair. private rooms are great (the pictures) the dorms are o.k., showers dont have curtains or doors which isn't the best in a dorm. Wifi works great, a lot of different staff some really helpful some not.

My husband and I loved the hostel and specially its location...it is almost inside the Akropole site!! Really amazing. You can find everything you want including good meals just one minute far from the hostel. The breakfast is simple but ok to start the day...beside you can buy items like fruits or yogurt for just one euro and enjoy better your breakfast. The only downside is the cleanliness in the rooms and bathrooms as well...they have to improve that. All in all we recommend it!

Highly recommended to stay in this hostel. Good location, helpful staff, many shops and facilities nearby and much to do even at night time. The hostel organize a lot of activities as well. The room is really clean and big, very comfortable.

Athens Studios misses the key point of having a hostel "common room". When backpacking it is such an integral part to sit around fellow travellers and exchange stories of your journey. There is no area where you can sit and relax. There is a bar which they call the common area but clearly it is not. You are not allowed to bring your own food or drinks and hang around here. It is a bar like any other. Nothing special about it being in a hostel. But everything else about the place was good.
